Sustainable water management key issue in textile industry
With groundwater levels dipping by the year, it has become imperative for the textiles industry to implement systems and design processes that cut down on the use of water in production. Recycling and reuse of wastewater also needs to be taken up on a bigger scale in textile manufacturing, feel industry leaders.

Speaking with Fibre2Fashion on the occasion of International Water Day, Abhishek Bansal, Head-Sustainability, Arvind Limited, said, “With advancements in technology, the textiles industry should try and explore areas wherein it can use recycled water. We must also look for platforms wherein water sustainability practices are being showcased which can thereby help many small and medium scale industries to take up similar initiatives.”

“The textiles industry should come forward and work together to adopt means which promote sustainable use of water in the production processes. Experts from machine manufacturers, chemicals and auxiliary’s suppliers, and wastewater treatment should also be made part of this process. This knowledge sharing platform will spread awareness and promote innovations,” said Chetan Tare, Project Manager, Anubha Industries.

Echoing similar views, Mustang Socks & Accessories co-founder Lubeina Shahpurwala felt wastewater management should become the primary objective, perhaps a mandatory practice for every manufacturing unit in the textile industry. “We have to mutually work towards the cause to make a difference.”
